European Video Awards 2023: The Winners

Dan Meier 29 September, 2023 

The second annual European Video Awards (EVAs) took place last night at London’s luxurious Pan Pacific, celebrating the best in European video and CTV advertising. Entrants were drawn from Europe’s leading brands, agencies, broadcasters, publishers, platforms and technology companies.

Hosted by the incomparable comedian Stephen K Amos, the EVAs awarded the outstanding creativity, innovation and technological advances in video & CTV advertising.

The judging panel of media, tech and creative specialists brought their marketing and technology expertise to categories ranging from social and ad technology, right through to data and sustainability. Judges were hugely impressed by the calibre of this year’s entries and many went right to the wire.
